Nano-scale memristor SPICE implementation using ideal operational amplifier model


Journal Article

The conception of memristor is becoming increasingly prevalent due to its remarkable electronic properties. In this paper, a circuit model of the memristor using simple SPICE code is presented. An ideal closed-loop operational amplifier (OP-AMP) is applied to realize the feedback-controlled integrator, which expands the hitherto methods to solve the memristor's modeling equations presented by HP Lab. The behaviors of the proposed memristor model in SPICE are investigated. The desired excitation source and initial condition of the doped state can both be easily tuned in the memristor model. Different pinched hysteresis loop i-v curves are presented through different stimulus like sinusoidal and square-wave voltage source. The modeling results in SPICE are perfectly in good agreement with the MATLAB calculated results, which verify the feasibility of the proposed memristor model. © 2013 SPIE.
